The rain has begun, and New Jersey Gov. Christie isn’t taking any chances.
Christie signed an executive order ahead of today’s anticipated deluge declaring a state of emergency along the Passaic and Delaware rivers and around flood-prone Bound Brook in Somerset County.
Christie said during a radio interview yesterday evening that the emergency declaration would enable National Guard troops and State Police to mobilize early.
The governor was widely criticized for leaving the state for a Florida vacation before a post-Christmas blizzard dumped up to 2 feet of snow on the state.
Not this time!
